Get an Aussie-made Commodore while you still can as the next gen will be imported from Germany.

Holden’s revival of the GTSR badge serves as the culmination of the locally built Commodore and will be available alongside the lesser models of the range that are now showing off their mild refresh prepared for the 2017MY. It’s the last model year to have the “Made in Australia” label and it brings a splash of color with new body hues featuring interesting names like “Light My Fire” (orange), Son of a Gun Grey, and Spitfire Green.

It’s going to be a tad easier to choose a Commodore model than before considering Holden has simplified the range by reserving the manual gearbox for the V8 sedans and utes, while the SS-V models and Calais Sportwagon have been dropped. Another novelty brought by the 2017MY is satellite navigation fitted as standard equipment on the Calais trim, while the Calais V has gained new 19-inch wheels, a jet black interior, and an electrochromatic rearview mirror.

The SV6 now comes with more niceties like a head-up display, satellite navigation, and 18-inch wheels with black accents. Upgrade to the V8 SS models and Holden will throw in the aforementioned navigation and head-up display, as well as fresh 19-inch rims. The more expensive SS-V Redline has gained some black body accents and an assortment of black appliques on the inside. Lastly, the Caprice V has been fitted as standard with the SS-V Redline’s steering wheel wrapped in leather.

Holden estimates there’s going to be a high demand, which is why it advises people interested in owning one to order it before April, otherwise they’ll likely lose the opportunity to claim one of the last Commodores built Down Under. Production of the outgoing model will come to an end in October.

The all-new front-wheel-drive 2018 Commodore will arrive in Australia early next year as a rebadged version of the German-made Opel Insignia Grand Sport and will be offered as a wagon as well.

2017 Holden Commodore is Here

  • 2017 Holden Commodore on sale – customers encouraged to lodge their interest at local Holden dealer
  • Premium high-tech features including head-up display and satellite navigation available on SV6 models and above
  • Styling treatments include the addition of black grille, vents and wheels to selected models
  • Technology packed 2017 Holden Commodore hints at what’s to come in 2018’s next-generation Commodore

Holden has saved the best until last for its final year of locally produced Commodore, combining high-tech features with exceptional customer value and the dynamic performance Commodore has built its reputation on over the past 38 years.

Holden Director – Communications, Sean Poppitt, said the 2017 Commodore honoured the attributes that have elevated it to be one of Australia’s most loved cars, whilst hinting at the exciting, technology focus the next-generation will offer.

“Commodore has always stood for leading driving dynamics, exceptional customer value and a striking road presence, and the 2017 Commodore is a perfect example of that,” said Mr. Poppitt.

“Not only have we added some great styling enhancements like black accents and some stunning new colours, we’ve also dialed up the technology offering with head-up display and satellite navigation available on SV6 models.”

Adding to cosmetic enhancements, Holden has introduced three new colours to the 2017 Commodore range, including Light My Fire (orange), Spitfire Green and Son of a Gun Grey, giving customers looking for a collectable final model year vehicle another tough decision to make.

The Commodore range has been simplified for 2017 with manual transmission reserved for V8 sports sedans and utes, whilst SS-V models and Calais Sportwagon are no longer available.

As with all Holden vehicles, Commodore also promises exceptional customer value beyond the point of purchase thanks to Holden’s leading Lifetime Capped Price Servicing program, as well as financial assistance from Holden Financial Services.

With high demand expected, customers are encouraged to order any personally configured MY17 Commodore vehicles via their local Holden dealer before April 2017, with all vehicles ordered after that being subject to availability.
